    I think it worked since ever in Switch but had wrong info from users (I don't own a Pro controller). Because of that I removed it.

    But before a month or more, I changed one Joy-Con to be identified as a Pro controller. And I saw that the buttons had different colors in Switch. Not just white.
    So I added it back.

    Such a wonderful tool. Im actually going to buy transparent color case for the switch and joycons like the N64/Gameboy color models

    looking into the new updates, i just love the fact that the "Acc/meter (Raw/Cal):" can detect earths gravity.

    no
    Maybe you should make a Preset Color button so you can quickly choose a colorful pair or joycons to be written
    like the official colors would be in there and custom colors and maybe like a weekly contest to see who can make good pairs. Like "Make the joycons like an older console controller!" and I would send the hex values for an NES styled joycons. i dunno just an idea

    The contest is not a bad idea but I don't have the time maintain this.

    As for the preset, it can work with official and custom ones. I wanted since start to change the crappy windows color applet but it's not easy. I have to create it from scratch (because no known c++ ones).
    After Odyssey, I will have more free time. Maybe I'll do it.

    Bluetooth Connection on Mac OS X not working. My joy-con is clearly connected and the software just says its not connected. Im using CrossOver on Mac to launch the .exe file it opens cleanly but then says my joy-con is not connected!... Very frustrating is there a work around for this??? or am i just out of luck in changing my joy-con's software colors????

    Thanks again!

    It doesn't work on a mac. even with a VM, it needs a native windows system

    VirtualBox can pass through some internal bluetooth devices, though not all, but it is a complete pain in the ass. Using Parallels, it is indeed not possible.

    Can you add the teal color of the Xenoblade Pro Controller buttons as one of the button color presets?

    well those presets are mostly used for stock colours you would find on the controllers chip.

    Indeed.
    If the xenoblade pro controller has this info inside, I would be more than happy to check a spi backup from it and publish the colors.

    Other than that, I don't include guessed or personal presets.

    If you want this color here's an approximate from photoshop:
    64, 175, 142 (RGB, dialog)
    #40AF8E (HEX RGB)
    #8EAF40 (HEX BGR, config file)

    I see

    Did you try using bootcamp?

    @CTCaer Thanks for this tool. Having clear Joy-Cons show up as grey sure is a bummer haha.

    FullSizeRender 2.jpg I asked a game dev on twitter what the colours are for the dev-kit exclusive black joy cons, they're just the pro controller colours.
    I don't know if you wanna add these to custom colours or not but it is technically a stock colour.
